Derrick Rose on the other hand was clearly the best player on the floor, by far.
Even when the Knicks got it close in the second quarter, I never felt the Bulls were going to lose. You probably missed Stacy's Gallinari comment - Gallinari couldn't guard anyone in an empty gym even with a rifle.

The Knicks could have drafted Brandon Jennings. Of all the teams that decided not to take a chance on him, they're the ones who really, really blew it.

Yep, agreed.

Rumor has it they passed on Jennings (and on other PG's) because they wanted to tell Lebron that he'd have the ball in his hands whenever and however he wanted.

This Lebron plan has serious backfire potential, in more ways then one. IMO, it is NOT a good idea to put your team's future on hold for several years for a chance at signing a single player, no matter how great he may be.

David Lee is not as bad as a defender as people think, he doesnt get dominated in the post much, hes just not a very smart perimeter defender. Also, the Knicks offense is all about transition scoring and long range shooting which hurts the defense when those shots dont go down because all the other team has to do is run and score in transition.

David Lee damn good player and I would LOVE to have him on the Bulls.
